Basically because when someone signs onto a geocaching list there is a reasonable expectation that there will be some geocaching material on the geocaching list. There is a set of guidelines sent to everyone when they sign up. The community expects that most folks will follow most of the guidelines.

If you want a no holds barred, discuss anything list with local like minded people that know what they are getting in for, I have some spare unconfigured lists. go here and sign up.


I think right now there is a discussion of . . well, to mention that here would not be prudent at this junctuure. SO, go to this junk list and talk smack all day long.

The last man standing wins.

As Stephen said, virtually all of us here are adults and do get along out in the field quite well, so why not talk about what we like?

Sometimes the logic used to determine what is and isn't acceptable topic fodder amazes me. For instance, we aren't supposed to speak about the current issues of the day lest we offend someone's delicate sensibilities yet talking about food, vehicle licensing, weddings, various things one can purchase off the internet and even people's pets are okay...as long as we use the "NGR" or "NCR" tags? Heck, there was recently a topic about flying flags just this past September...that could easily be considered political, yet other political topics are verboten?

It's simple...read a topic if it interests you...don't read it if it doesn't.

Isn't that what freedom of speech and freedom of choice is all about?

I am feeling this way whole heartedly!

I'll start with carbon footprints and/or replacement window dealers.

Or watch out for any talk regarding a playground.

I say speak as an adult without aggressive and/or obscene remarks and let others determine what threads they do or don't like and take the responsibility to avoid that thread.

NGR and NCR do nothing to deter because a huge percent of what is said requires one of those labels as a precursor.

We are geocachers who know each other and generally play well. Therefore ALL post are geocaching related.

Pick and choose what you want to read and what you don't.

We are mostly all adults here.


PS-I am not saying anyone shares my view on this email, nancy's post was just a jumping point for me and MY beliefs

PPS- I won't be unsubscribing, if need be the powers that be will have to ban me.
